it is probable

well, if i did upgrade when render was a dummy port, there was a  
mechanism to swith from render to xorg-rendrproto quietly ? :-)

since i have often problems when i try to upgrade, i do it only when  
i need it ... maybe i'm wrong ;-)

thank you :-)

i don't like -f very much,
is there an option to recursively uninstall the ports that depend on it,
in the same way that "port install" recursively installs the ports  
witch it depends on ?
(is it english ?)

can't you use the same mechanism to swith from scrollkeeper to  
rarian, that you used for render -> xorg-rendrproto ?

anyway, i have an idea :-)
i'll detail it in a new msg
